CURE in Philippines

The picture above is of CURE in Philippines. Everyone who serves with CURE in Philippines, from medical professionals to office staff, are dedicated to providing the highest quality medical and spiritual care to people who, without CURE, couldn't find it and couldn't afford it, just like Just. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Just. When you give a gift through Just's CUREkids profile, your contribution will help us continue our work in countries like Philippines. Have more questions? Ask us.

Monthly Giving: Be a Hero!

When you partner with us monthly, we'll send you an email each month to introduce you to a different child who was helped because of your generosity. You can choose to follow their updates and send them get well messages. That means that each year, you're a part of helping 12 different children, beginning with Just. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Just's Story

“For 2018, my wish is to finally have surgery and now I would like to say, ‘wish came true,’” shares Just.

For a shy pre-teen, Just has not lacked friends to hang out with at school. He likes to play on a computer but also hopes to be able to go outside and play basketball. Even though he’s quiet, he is not timid to tell God what his heart’s desires are and that includes to be able to have surgery so he can dribble the ball on the court! But not only that, Just also tells us that he “wants to be a businessman someday and sell biscuits!”

Just has a lot of dreams, but as an only child, his mother Dominga also wants more for her son. “Having a clubbed hand, Just went through physical therapy when he was a toddler. This was the first recommendation to us by a doctor, but it was only for four months and stopped when he broke his arm three times because his bones are thin. I hope and pray that someone will be able to help us with Just’s situation, so he can finish school and find a job without being bullied. And what a blessing it is when a series of my colleagues at school recommended me to come to Tebow CURE for a screening,” shared Dominga.

A school nurse announced the opportunity to be healed here at Tebow CURE, but this was only after a couple of parents from Just’s hometown shared their stories to Dominga about their experience here at Tebow CURE. Our network of patients is growing and now Just gets to be a part of it. This will not be possible without your help and we’d like for you to be a part of God’s work as we continue to serve kids like Just!

Dominga tells us that Just can now use his other hand with his daily activities which include texting and playing video games. Alex from physical therapy actually caught Just and was happy to see that he can now use his left hand. Just skipped school today to come to clinic and will have some school work to catch up on when he gets home. He will need to continue with exercises to get to his maximum range of motion. Dr. Shelley reminds him that in case something happens, we are always here. But other than that, Just is good to go! Photo of Just

It took a while to coax out Just’s smile, but Alex finally did the job during physical therapy. Just’s wrist pin was removed, which was unfortunately pretty painful. Since it’d been in for so long, his skin began to grow over the top of it. He was incredibly brave though, and now can move onto the next step of doing hand exercises. He’s seeing a lot more flexibility in his elbow, all those exercises are paying off, and hopefully seeing progress will motivate him to keep working hard! Photo of Just

Just faithfully returned for another dressing change and physical therapy today. Every visit has been grueling and painful, but he still manages to end with a smile. All the hard work is paying off though, his wounds - especially his skin graft sites, are healing beautifully, and he is gaining a lot of range of movement in his elbow. He’ll keep stretching at home during April, and we’ll see him back in May for his pin removal. Thanks so much for your continued prayers! Photo of Just

We were surprised to see Just back so soon after his follow-up last week! But it looks like he has some sort of irritation on his elbow from his cast. A quick fix from cast to a splint was done by Nurse Ken, so his wrist was still protected. After that, last week's instruction to begin exercises is still required! For sure, we will see Just back in April and hope to not have any skin irritations then! Photo of Just

We were happy to see Just’s smile return today! After a rough go during his last trip, we’re glad to report that there is no infection, and although he’ll still keep the pin in his hand for another month, he’s healing well. He’ll begin exercises to gain motion and strength in his arm, then we’ll see how he’s doing in April, thanks for your continued prayers! Photo of Just

Just came in a month early for a dressing change due to some infection concerns, and it wasn’t exactly the highlight of his day. His arm is incredibly tender, which led to an absence of his trademark smile. He was still tough as nails, and made it through the process relatively unscathed. He’s all cleaned up and we’ll see him back again in a month, please be praying for his continued recovery! Photo of Just

Feb 09, 2018

Just was a man of few words today, answering questions with a simple “yes” or “no”. With that said, he doesn’t need any words to describe that smile. He is one happy guy! Even though he’s still in a little pain, he’s ready to get out of here and will continue to heal at home. We’ll see Just and his never ending smile back here in March, when we get to see how his healing is coming along. Stay tuned! Photo of Just

Because of your continued prayers for Just, we were happy to see him sitting up and feeling relaxed on his bed this morning. "I'm doing well and just watching TV," Just responded to us with a sweet smile as usual. Dominga was up for the most part to take care of him and snuck in a nap when she saw that Just was content in the ward. If everything turns out like today, Just will head home tomorrow!

Just's smile never faded away even as he rolled down into the OR. Dominga tagged along as well with her happy face! Full of excitement, Just and Dominga trusted God that our team would take care of Just during surgery. After Dr. Tim prayed for Just's healing, he made his first cut and was able to gain more extension on Just's motion by cutting a little piece of his bone to compensate with the short blood vessels that makes his elbow contract. After a few hours, Just's surgery was over. Thank you for your prayers! Photo of Just

Our boy, Just, got a hint of his dream coming true as he talked to Dianne in admission this afternoon. His mom Dominga is also excited to be here and showed trust to our staff as she responded to questions and requirements really well. They’ve been carrying a smile since they walked in the hospital and we hope to see it all week while Just starts his healing journey with us! Photo of Just
